The Zodiacs are surprised that the [[Kakin Empire]] are financing an expedition into the [[Dark Continent]], and the leader of the expedition claims to be the son of Isaac Netero named [[Beyond Netero]]. Hearing Beyond's speech and declaration the Zodiacs are left perplexed and despondent. Though the situation was tense, Beans reveals that Netero left two DVDs instead of one. Gel exclaims that the former chairman had the presence that this sort of event would occur. Beans explain that he was told by the former chairman to show this to the Zodiacs if a man came forth claiming he was his child. The Zodiacs briefly debate, on whether they should wait for Ging and Pariston to watch the DVD and Gel suggests they don't wait for them and immediately watch it. Cheadle, however, announces that Ging and Pariston have both submitted their letters of resignations to the Zodiacs and she accepts. Furthermore, she divulges that the [[V6|V5]] has given them a special assignment: hunt Beyond Netero.<ref>Hunter × Hunter - Volume 32, Chapter 340</ref>

The Zodiacs watch the 2nd DVD left by the former chairman and listen as he elaborates on the Dark Continent and his son's actions that barred him from entered the continent again until his father's death. Toward the end of the DVD, the former chairman makes a final request in the guise of a direct order. After the DVD was done playing, Gel inquires on what Cheadle thinks and she answers that it was obviously an order, so they will follow it. Following up on a comment that Kanzai made about how it's best to work with the Kakin Empire than be opposed to them, she states that Beyond has spent decades preparing for this and she knows only [[Ging Freecss|person]] that's dumb enough to consider going to the Dark Continent. She admits that if Ging helps for argument's sake that's fine, on the other hand, if the circumstances were different and he was still in the Zodiacs he'd still prefer doing things his own way. She detests the fact that Beyond has a greater lead than they do. The Zodiacs begin to argue amongst themselves and Gel tries to reason with everyone stating that Cheadle has yet to even disclose the reason for the hunt. The meeting is interrupted from a call by Beyond Netero. He meets with the Zodiacs and tells them to inform V5 that he's been "captured", simply calling it a quid pro quo.<ref name="chap341">Hunter × Hunter - Volume 34, Chapter 341</ref>

Revision as of 14:51, August 12, 2019

"In this land of complete unknowns... we don't know what will come to attack...!!"

— Gel to Kanzai, in "Challenge"

Gel (ゲル, Geru) is a Poison Hunter[1] and a member of the Zodiacs with the codename "Snake" ((), Mi).[2] She is also part of the Science Team, created in preparation for the voyage to the Dark Continent.[1]

Appearance

Gel is a slender and skinny woman and has very long black straight hair. Her eyes resemble those of a snake and are known to be abnormally big, while her nose is very small. She wears a long black dress that highlights her ample cleavage and big breasts. She has very pale skin and golden eyes, although the 2011 anime adaptation depicts her with dark skin and blue eyes.

During the voyage to the Dark Continent, she is seen wearing a strapless dress.[3]

Personality

Gel normally appears calm and reflective, showing signs of resentment only against Pariston, whom she does not hesitate to attack. On that occasion, she showed to be bold enough to use her ability in front of other people. She is also quite a reasonable person. She correctly analyzed that Beyond has already prepared for the expedition for a long time, and Gel stated that she would go to the Dark Continent only if Ging, whom she believed to be more prepared for such an expedition, were going with them.[4]

Plot

13th Hunter Chairman Election arc

All Zodiacs present for the election meeting

Gel with the other Zodiacs

After Chairman Netero's death, Gel, alongside the other Zodiacs, is called to vote for a new Hunter Association Chairman.[5] In response to Mizaistom's concern where Pariston is, Gel replies that he's probably out and about trying to secure more votes for himself. The moment Pariston arrives and immediately tries to lead the meeting, he solves the problem in a democratic fashion and asks for a raise of hands who is for or against him leading the meeting. Gel votes in the minority being against him leading and loses. With that settled away, Pariston announces his candidacy for Chairman and proposes to his fellow Zodiacs that they skip the elections. The announcement makes the Zodiacs (minus Ging) act hostile towards Pariston and although he keeps his composure, Gel threatens him with her ability, declaring none of the Zodiacs would vote for him. As the meeting progresses Ging announces his candidacy, though none of the Zodiacs care to vote for him either. After Parison and Ging's talk about Gon, Pariston reconsiders his announcement and so, in order to decide what the rules are going to be chosen for the election, Cheadle suggests a lot lottery where each Zodiac writes down a set of rules and the lot that's drawn will decide the rules for the election. Gel notes that Beans will most likely be the person to draw the lottery. As soon as all of the Zodiac finish writing up their lottery Beans is summoned and draws the lottery. The lottery winner is Ging.[2]

Kanzai getting a warning

Gel's Nen ability stops Kanzai

Beans then read Ging's rules for the election.[2][6] During the meeting after the second round of the 13th Hunter Chairman Election, Gel's Nen ability is among the obstacles that blocks Kanzai path when he tries to attack Pariston.[7] In the subsequent meeting, in response to the increased number of absentee voters, Pariston suggests they hold an assembly to convince their fellow Hunters the importance of voting for a new chairman.[8] In the Hunter Association auditorium, the Zodiacs gather the voters and hold speeches to decrease the number of absentee voters. The conference goes well until a tall man in a navy suit named Leorio steps up to the podium to ask Ging a question, which quickly escalates to Ging sent flying by Leorio's Nen ability. This fiasco, however, causes the 95% quorum rule to be met, allowing the top sixteen candidates to progress to the fourth round.[9] Gel is not among the sixteen as she was eliminated in the prior round.[10] Gel along with Mizaistom and Saiyu, serve as inspectors during the sixth round of the election.[11]

Zodiacs - 146

Gel's reaction to Pariston's decision

Another general assembly is held before the eighth round, with the Hunters present being forbidden to leave the premises until a new Chairman is chosen.[12] Right after the eighth round is held, Pariston makes an emergency motion in an attempt to stall the proceedings.[13] The conclusion of the ninth round, resulting in Pariston's victory, Gel is shocked by the winner's immediate resignation.[14]

Dark Continent Expedition arc

The-zodiacs

Gel and what's left of the Zodiacs discover Netero's message

The Zodiacs are surprised that the Kakin Empire is financing an expedition into the Dark Continent, and the leader of the expedition claims to be the son of Isaac Netero named Beyond Netero. Hearing Beyond's speech and declaration the Zodiacs are left perplexed and despondent. Though the situation was tense, Beans reveals that Netero left two DVDs instead of one. Gel exclaims that the former chairman had the presence that this sort of event would occur. Beans explain that he was told by the former chairman to show this to the Zodiacs if a man came forth claiming he was his child. The Zodiacs briefly debate, on whether they should wait for Ging and Pariston to watch the DVD and Gel suggests they don't wait for them and immediately watch it. Cheadle, however, announces that Ging and Pariston have both submitted their letters of resignations to the Zodiacs and she accepts. Furthermore, she divulges that the V5 has given them a special assignment: hunt Beyond Netero.[15]

341 - Beyond&#039;s proposal to the Zodiacs

Beyond tells the Zodiacs to inform the V5 that he has been "captured"

The Zodiacs watch the 2nd DVD left by the former chairman and listen as he elaborates on the Dark Continent and his son's actions that barred him from entered the continent again until his father's death. Toward the end of the DVD, the former chairman makes a final request in the guise of a direct order. After the DVD was done playing, Gel inquires on what Cheadle thinks and she answers that it was obviously an order, so they will follow it. Following up on a comment that Kanzai made about how it's best to work with the Kakin Empire than be opposed to them, she states that Beyond has spent decades preparing for this and she knows only person that's dumb enough to consider going to the Dark Continent. She admits that if Ging helps for argument's sake that's fine, on the other hand, if the circumstances were different and he was still in the Zodiacs he'd still prefer doing things his own way. She detests the fact that Beyond has a greater lead than they do. The Zodiacs begin to argue amongst themselves and Gel tries to reason with everyone stating that Cheadle has yet to even disclose the reason for the hunt. The meeting is interrupted from a call by Beyond Netero. He meets with the Zodiacs and tells them to inform V5 that he's been "captured", simply calling it a quid pro quo.[4]

As Cheadle interrogates Beyond in his prison cell, the remaining Zodiacs watch from a two-way window and are disconcerted by Beyond's prediction that they'll all journey into the Dark Continent together. Amid the interrogation, Kanzai is elaborated by Gel about the merits and demerits of journeying into the Dark Continent for the Hunter Association. Finishing her interrogation, Cheadle informs the Zodiacs that they're journeying to the Dark Continent with Beyond. In response to Kanzai's dull-witted comment, Gel explains to the Tiger that Beyond is their prison now, but when they reach the Dark Continent he'll escape and the Hunter Association will not only have to deal with re-capturing Beyond and his allies, but also the threats that inhabit the continent.[16] The Zodiacs watch as Beyond signs the contract drafted by the IPA Director in front of Cheadle.[17]

Cheadle summons a meeting to introduce the new Boar and Rat, and she starts explaining about the V6, the Five Threats, the difficulty of the mission, which is A, whereas the Chimera Ants were ranked B, and asks if anyone has any questions. Kurapika raises his hand, saying he has many. The first is how many infiltrators on Netero's side the Zodiacs have managed to identify, much to everyone's shock. But Kurapika's statement is cut short by Mizaistom who later privately explains about the current condition and asks Kurapika to keep his theory to himself for the time being. The Zodiacs then continue to sum up their preparations for the journey, with Gel stating that since her job begins upon landing, she is relatively free during the voyage, and she is currently drafting disease control procedures with Single-Star Virus Hunter Sanbica Norton. She is assigned to the Science Team.[1]

Chap 348 - Zodiacs

Mizaistom Nana summons the Zodiacs, minus the new Rat and the new Boar

When Mizaistom calls a new meeting, Gel is flabbergasted by the announcement that a spy is likely to be hiding among the Zodiacs. Like the others, she agrees to reveal her powers. However, unbeknownst to her, Kurapika is using his dowsing to determine who is lying, and she is revealed to be innocent.[18]

Succession Contest arc

First-class cabin

Gel in a meeting involving the Dark Continent

Upon the departure of the Black Whale, Gel attends a meeting with Cluck, Ginta, Pyon, Sanbica Norton, Tokarine, and another Hunter. Using a map, she explains at what point they will board Morel's ship to the Dark Continent, and clarifies Knov's and Tokarine's roles. To the latter's question she replies it will be hard to recruit more people to aid with transportation, while thinking to herself she thinks that Tokarine is cute and represses the urge to poke her belly.[3] Gel is shown to be in the Medical Ward in Tier 3 with Cheadle and Leorio.[19]

Abilities & Powers

Being a member of the Zodiacs, Gel is a capable and powerful enough Hunter to have served as Netero's sparring partner, and to be deemed by Kanzai to be stronger than Morel and Knov.[2] Her authority in the Hunter Association is among the highest. As a Poison Hunter,[1] she is knowledgeable in chemistry, biology, and medicine. Gel has showcased an adequate degree of intelligence when she explained to a clueless Kanzai about the several consequences of Beyond's announcement and subsequent capture.[16] Although her full powers are still unknown, she has enough confidence in her strength to use her ability to threaten Pariston with all the Zodiacs assembled.[2]

Nen

Geru snake hand ability

Gel's snake hand

Gel's Nen ability has yet to be revealed, but she demonstrated the ability to seemingly transform her arm into a snake. The snake has four hearts on its head, with the one in the middle larger than the other three, and a ribbon tied around its neck.[2]

Quotes

  • (To Pariston) "None of usss here... ...would vote for you."[2]

Trivia

  • In the Viz translation, the character's name was initially transliterated as "Geru"[2][6][7] (identical to the rōmaji version of her original Japanese name), but later in the introduction of Volume 33/34 and in Chapter 346 it appears changed as "Gel".
